You have just written the script for an inspirational online advertisement or maybe it’s a piece of narration in a children’s book? Or say you are creating an audiobook from existing material? All you need now is the right voice for the voiceover, one that captures the nuances of human emotion that you have incorporated in your script.
How do you decide which voice best fits your production?
This is where emotive AI voices take center stage. Recent breakthroughs in deep learning and text-to-speech have made it possible to replicate the many subtleties of human speech. These custom, one-of-a-kind text-to-speech voices can change in style and emotion, take pauses and breathe in the right places, and learn the tone and patterns of the speech of a voice actor. Content creators no longer need to provide the exact pacing, pronunciation, or intonation of the generated speech themselves. Instead, they can simply train an AI-based algorithm on hours of recorded voice audio that deciphers these patterns for itself, learns, and replicates the individual pattern of each voice to create audio.
AI, in fact, has opened the gates to a playing field that for far too long was the preserve of only a very fortunate few. Today, these text-to-speech voices are used in e-learning, advertisements, games, branding, learning and development, voice work in animated films, voice assistants, audiobooks, and more.
